Enter Your Film

Entries for the 2018 Sit Down, Shutup and Watch Film & New Media Festival are now closed. We have received a record number of entries from all over the world so thank you!

All films need to have a person with a learning disability at their centre. This means that a person with a learning disability is the force behind the film not simply the subject matter! You can be the writer, the composer, the director, the producer, the cinematographer, the animator, the rock star or the hero…or all of those things – but it has to be your film.
